Does anyone have a thriving wild turkey population to share with a traveling turkey hunter?

We have a bunch but between me and my neighbors there like pets. Many very old toms with about 10inch beards.  We also have 2 bearded hens

The Toms must be almost ready to start struttin' and gobblin'.  They are here.  Haven't heard any gobbling activity yet but I always do during "sugaring" season.  I harvested a bearded hen once that actually gobbled at my calls.  Strange.

Wish i could help you out turkeys around this area seem to be dwindling.  I've seen 2 decent Toms and 3 Jakes.  Nothing like years past though wasn't nothing to see at 6 or more Toms in the valley fields trying to catch an eye of a lady.  Must be a food or predator thing seems like the grouse have suffered too since the coyotes came here.
Take me to the land of milk and honey!!!

Thanks any way.   Turkey numbers are dropping a little here too.
